INTRODUCTION

The new era of green energy is coming. Thousands of new ideas are in the air. We are witnesses of a new energy revolution on earth. Wind energy, solar energy, geothermal energy, sea wave energy, etc. So many inventions are waiting for the right inventors! ne of these magical technologies is our plasma heat generation project. We believe this project will open the door for plasma heat energy. Twenty years ago a group of enthusiasts found small, abnormal, extra heating within one of experiments with plasma. Does anyone remember the first LED? It was a microscopic red dot in a dark room but it was revolutionary! I know it sounds a little bit ambitious but that small amount of extra heat was just as revolutionary. Now, 20 years later, we found the way to convert that small spark into a real fire. We can make an electric heater that consumes just a fraction of the electricity of a conventional home electric heater. It is like modern LED bulbs that use 1/10 of the power of incandescent bulbs with the same amount of light. We can dramatically reduce power consumption in so many situations! Even more impressively, we can convert the heat back to electricity and feed the plasma! Now, we have an electric power generator, which will work until the thermal fuel element totally burns out. Today, that process takes months! We have developed totally green electric energy. The generators will produce heat and electricity. It can be small or large, for private homes or for gigawatt power plants, for electric cars, aircraft, and vessels. This is the time to start a new project with the aim of manufacturing a micro-plasma thermal generator. Let’s take this revolutionary invention and expand our capabilities. Let’s change the world!

Some of our documented experiments

Definition of the effect. Effect: generation and utilization of thermal energy, including generation of the electromagnetic radiation streams in a wide spectrum, taking place in high temperature micro-plasma spots by burning a poly-mineral-metallic substance on the surface of a firm conductive material.

Acknowledgment of the effect consists mainly in comparison of radiating thermal energy proceeding from micro-plasma thermal generator (μ- PTG) of varying length and diameter, which differ from each other in weight, dimensions, radiation area, and electric energy consumed by these assemblages. Experiments to define thermal and electric capacity of different micro plasma thermal generator (μ-PTG) have shown the following:

  1. Thermal radiation of μ-PTG consisting of thermal elements with diameter of 30 and 40 mm, length of 30 centimeters, makes about 3 kW, thus weight of μ-PTG was nearby 2 kg, the area of radiation – 330 square centimeters. Consumed electric capacity - about 2.1 kW.
  2. Thermal radiation of μ-PTG consisting of thermal elements with diameter of 40 and 60 mm, length of 100 centimeters, makes about 11.6 kW, thus weight of assemblage was near 12 kg, the area of radiation - 2072 square centimeters. Consumed electric capacity - about 3.5 kW.
  3. Thermal radiation of μ-PTG consisting of thermal elements with diameter of 75 mm, length of 100 centimeters, makes about 18 kW, thus the weight of μ-PTG makes nearby 35 kg, the radiation area - 2355 square centimeters. Because of μ-PTG weight increasing, consumed electric capacity has made 3.7 kW.
  4. Using of μ-PTG made of thermal elements with diameter of 90 mm, length of 100 centimeters, thermal radiation were made by 23 kW, thus the weight of assemblage has made 56 kg, the area of radiation - 2826 square centimeters. So considerable weight of μ-PTG, owing to its big thermal inertance, allows to work at consumption of electric capacity about 4.2 kW.
  5. Experiment took place June 2017. Using of µ-PTG 60x60 mm thermal elements, length 100 cm placed inside copper tube evaporator and thermally isolated. With power consumption of 3.5 KW, 22 liters of water at 20oC evaporated within an hour. The evaporation of 1 liter of water required 2450 kJ/h or 0.68 kW/h. To evaporate 22 liters of water, 15 kWh thermal energy generated.

Conclusion: Active power consumption of all kinds of μ-PTG measured by variety measuring devices, which showed identical results in each case. This makes the equal range of measurement errors of the active power generation. The increase in mass size of μ-PTG, which simultaneously increases the radiation area, leads to escalation of their heat-radiating abilities. At the same time, a thermal inertance of these assemblages is increasing, what allows experimentation with power supplies on different frequency and porosity to stabilize a power consumption of assemblages at 4 – 5 kW. This effect can be reached due to the internal energy of condenser films of the evaporated mineral substance, in which electrostatic energy film condensers discharge in plasma zones and give proper additional thermal radiation. Coefficient of efficiency of μ-PTG with the diameter of 90 mm makes nearly 5.9. The given coefficient will increase in the process of mass and dimension enlargement of μ-PTG itself.

The main idea

We have learned how to obtain extended thermal energy from minerals in high-temperature plasma. In terms of its indices, the process by its physical parameters is close to burning fuel with a huge calorific value. We are going to build a working prototype of a power generator operating on this principle. The knowledge of how to accomplish this took over 15 years of research and experimentation. We are looking for the partners and investors to launch this project. The intended market we are heading toward is the production of heat and electricity.

What is MICRO-PTG?

Micro plasma thermal generator (μ-PTG) is the assembly of thermal elements designed to initiate micro plasma spots on correspondent composite poly-mineral-metallic surfaces. The body of the element used to distribute and accumulate thermal energy in order to prevent plasma spot overheating and, in conjunction with mineral interlayer, to be a fuel for thermal generation effect. A special power supply is required to keep thermal spot stable and productive.

Concept design of standalone electric generator based on MICRO-PTG and Stirling engine

For small and medium applications (5 KW – 500 KW) the Stirling engine is one of the best solutions as of today. The modern Stirling engines have efficiency between 30% and 40%, no or low maintenance, are very silent, have a very long life cycle, and emit no pollution. In combination with μ-PTG, we can build the ultimate electric power and heat system with very low maintenance cost and very low total cost of ownership. The cost of the energy produced is just a fraction compared to traditional power sources.

Featured schematic of power plant based on MICRO-PTG and supercritical fluid

For large applications (Megawatts and up), steam turbines are commonly used all over the world to produce electricity. The newest technology of supercritical fluid used to increase efficiency of the power plant. Such plants can produce electric power along with consumable heat for community utilization. Such design is very close to modern nuclear power plants but without the hard radiation and nuclear fuel. The μ-PTG will require planned replacement but it is much cheaper than nuclear fuel and does not require exotic materials. The volume of materials used to produce μ-PTG are almost unlimited. According to our preliminary calculations, the final cost of electricity can be around $0.015 per kilowatt at power plants with the generated power up to 100 Megawatts or more.

Our project

What we have at the current stage? The effect is confirmed in hundreds successful experiments in different laboratories. Today we need not just a working prototype but real heater ready for manufacturing and using in real devices as we described above. We need about a year of scrupulous laboratory work to find out the best materials, the mode of operation, construction of power supply, etc. Therefore, we have to be ready for manufacturing with the best device possible. Our enthusiasm did let us to finance the first stage from our pockets but now the additional financing required to finish the project. At the end of this step, we are going to develop a production prototype of electric and heat generator within one year for a single house with the option to connect to the grid to sell excessive electricity to the public.

This system could be combined with a power accumulation system to be ready for peak consumption. According to U.S. Energy Information Administration, the average annual electricity consumption for a U.S. residential utility customer is 10,766 kilowatt-hours (kWh), an average of 897 kWh per month. Our system can produce non-stop up to 4kW electric power, which is up to 2,880 kWh per month.

Water heating is the second largest energy user in our homes and accounts for about 20% of household energy costs. For families with electric water heaters, the monthly energy consumption is usually between 300 and 500 kWh per month. Our system will generate up to 400 kWh of thermal energy per day. It requires utilizing excessive thermal energy with coolers and additional utilization of the electric energy to the public grid.

The second line of products are power plants with outgoing power counted in megawatts or gigawatts for industrial, scientific, military, or other usage. For such applications, turbines are widely used with various working fluids. For such applications, we will design a new steam generator based on utilization of the heat produced by multi µ-PTG combined device. Under the current stage of the project, we will design and emulate high power heater core for the future project with over-megawatts turbine generator.

After producing the first production prototype, we will have the ability to use partially the same equipment to start a production of such power systems after proper registration and certification.

Example of niche use

Our method is four times more effective at heating an area than all existing analogues. For a more detailed analysis of the potential application of the method, additional research is needed in the field of climate control and heat transfer systems.

The total area of greenhouses in 2017 exceeds the total land size of Germany and Austria (500,000 km2) and annually increases by 11%. The market needs new alternatives to the current source of heat and electricity. This means that annually for 50,000 km2. Greenhouses will require new technical solutions, 1/3 of which are located in Western Europe. It is an opportunity to sell 30-40,000 Atakam generators annually and to provide return of investments.

Our project stages

The first stage is scientific and laboratory work. The effect of thermal generation and the presence of effect confirmed by a series of successful experiments. This stage was executed and financed by the founders. This stage has been successfully completed.

The second stage (where we are now) is research and development (R&D) at the engineering level with the aim of creating a fully working heat generator based on the detected effect. At this stage, we are looking for financial aid because it is practically impossible to find proper partners without to be sold out in whole. Help is vitally needed to survive now.

Our team is ready to do everything possible to transfer this project to the public. Thank you for your attention and understanding.
